As I said, a shunt regulator needs positive feedback,
ie; if voltage is too high, must turn on more.
The actual inversion is provided by the nature
of it being a shunt reg.

I really don't think you can do it with a 317,
but I already posted a one transistor solution that
I have used for years that is cheaper and just
as simple. You are not going to get short circuit
protection from a shunt reg anyway so the extra
cost of a regulator chip is not justified. :o)
